More nuttiness from Neturei Karta

You say Iran wants to destroy the nation of Israel? Hey, cool by these guys!

"Orthodox Jews the world over, are saddened by the hysteria which has greeted the recent stated desire of the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to see a world free of Zionism. This desire is nothing more than a yearning for a better, more peaceful world. It is a hope that with the elimination of Zionism, Jews and Muslims will live in harmony as they have throughout the ages, in Palestine and throughout the world. " - Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss [bolding mine]

Good times.

In honor of these Uncle Toms who betray their fellow Jews, I offer some sanity in an insane word. Enjoy!

two other things worth noting

the official iranian statement has the nk'ers praising iran's holocaust denial

"In a statement to Iran's official IRIB radio, the group called for "the disintegration of the Zionist regime" and defended the Iranian president, saying that it "is a dangerous deviation to pretend that the Iranian president is an anti-Jewish or anti-Semitic personality."

They added that they were "upset about the recent ploys, propaganda and tensions which have been created by the West regarding the statements of the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about a world free of Zionism, since this is nothing more than wishing for a better world dominated by peace and calm."

On Sunday, members of the delegation, headed by Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, met with Iranian Vice-President Ahmad Moussavi, who also chairs the Iranian Committee in Support of the Palestinian Revolution.

At the meeting, according to the Iranian news agency IRNA, Weiss "praised the 'enlightening' statements of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about the Holocaust and said the establishment of a Zionist government and occupation of Palestine are contrary to the injunctions of Judaism."


secondly, an NK'er took the stand as a character witness for the most notorious terrorist in the UK

I guess what I don't understand is how they can justify causing danger to fellow Jews. How can that be rationalized away through their philosophy?

1. they don't really consider us 'fellow jews'

2. as rabbi meisel has pointed out they've left behind judaism in favor of a kind of 'universalist' philosophy that denigrates jewish rights in favor of universal rights... in essence they've become the left-wing activists they've associated with for so long

This might sound as if I am defending people who support my death, but just wanted to clear something up.

NK is anti-zionist, not anti-semitic. When leftists around the world protest Israel, we know that they are anti-semitic and anti-Israel most of the time, because they single out Israel and aren't protesting severe human rights atrocities elsewhere with the same fervour.

I can respect the anti-semitic Satmars, but the NKs have totally gone whacko overboard and actually encouraging people who are currently killing Jews.

One only has to wonder why they singled out 'return to zion before mashiach' as the most important sin. Go figure. On second thought, I wish all of you to not waste any time thinking about this cult. May they do tshuva and cause us to do tshuvaas well.

it seems the N'Kers went too far. The Satmar Rav has put all N'Kers into Cherem
